We took 1 day of PTO on Memorial Day Weekend for a quick trip to Bogota and Zipaquira Colombia. Highlights included food, coca, and the graffiti tour.
Trip time: 4 days: 1 PTO day + 1 vacation day (MLK) + 2 weekend days – 7 hours each direction.
Major attractions visited:
- Paloquemao Market
- Plaza Bolivar
- Museo Del Oro (Gold Museum)
- Zipaquira Salt Cathedral
- Bogota Graffiti Tour
- Iglesia Nuestra Senora del Carmen (Church)
We went to Colombia with a list of foods that we wanted to eat that was 2 pages long.
That Time We Tried Coca
Andeans across Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia have been chewing coca leaves or drinking coca tea for thousands of years
How Bogota Feels
This post is just a set of pictures from around the city that capture the feeling of Bogota.
The monastery-topped mountain Monseratte looms over the East horizon of Bogota.
Paloquemao, a gigantic, pungent, colorful, bountiful market in the middle of Bogota, did not disappoint.
